No, tampons should never be used when not menstruating.

Tampons absorb vaginal moisture causing drying and micro-tears in vaginal tissues that allow bacterial toxins responsible for TSS direct access to your bloodstream, using tampons without menstruating means more damage and thus higher risk of TSS. Tampons are also a major cause of vaginal infections such as Bacterial Vaginosis and yeast infections, which aren't ideal in pregnancy.

If you have excessive vaginal discharge it may be an infection to talk to your doctor, you can use menstrual cups or softcups to deal with this but it's best to use liners, pads or period underwear.

NO you should never wear a tampon while pregnant as it is an infection risk. If you have a discharge (as many women do) wear a napkin. If your loss is so heavy that you feel you need a tampon it is not normal and you need to see a doctor as soon as possible.

Actually for the imbeciles woman can bleed while pregnant my mother and my aunt did and we are fine!

No, you cannot wear tampons when pregnant.You should only use tampons during menstruation or withdrawal bleeds - if you're bleeding during pregnancy heavy enough to warrant tampon use then you need to seek immediate medical care. Tampons can't be used when not menstruating because without menstrual flow tampons will absorb more vaginal discharge resulting in drying out and damaging vaginal tissues - this increases risk of TSS. Tampons also increase risk of vaginal infections which is not something you want when pregnant.

No, monkeys don't wear tampons. Only humans wear tampons.

No, they wear their own tampons.

No, tampons do not stop a girl from getting pregnant. Tampons are a menstrualhygiene product, they are not a form of contraception.

WHAT?! There's no need!! Tampons are for when you have your period ONLY! What on Earth would you need a tampon for if your pregnant?!

There is no harm in using tampons when you're pregnant, although pregnancy usually doesn't require tampons. Don't worry about it.

NEVER wear tampons when not menstruating - it's not safe and no need.

No, you cannot use tampons when pregnant.For a start if you're pregnant then you're not going to be menstruating - women can bleed during pregnancy but it's not the same as menstruation and you will not know your flow pattern well enough to know what absorbency to use so using tampons at this time increases TSS risk. If you do experience bleeding during pregnancy it's important that you talk to your doctor immediately as bleeding could be a sign of a serious problem with your pregnancy.Tampons shouldn't be worn when pregnant because there is a higher risk of infections too - during pregnancy your risk of vaginal infections is already higher and it can be more difficult to treat while pregnant - tampons increase risk of infections so it's far from ideal when pregnant.

You cannot menstruate while pregnant - menstruation only occurs if you don't fall pregnant - but you can experience bleeding while pregnant such as implantation bleeding. If you suspect that you may be pregnant then take a pregnancy test to find out if you are pregnant or not. Do not use tampons when your flow is light like this, it is dangerous and irresponsible to misuse tampons like this.

No, tampons should not be used when not menstruating - if you're pregnant then you do not menstruate and thus no reason at all for you to use tampons. Tampons used when not menstruating can be painful and will increase your risk of developing vaginal infections and well as Toxic Shock Syndrome.If you're bleeding while pregnant you need to talk to your doctor or go to hospital.

Tampons can be worn when you have a full regular menstrual flow.Tampons cannot be worn before your period.Tampons cannot be worn with light flow or spotting.Tampons cannot be worn overnight while sleeping.Tampons cannot be worn with a vaginal infection.

Yes you can, i am pregnant and that's all I wear. They make "pregnant" thongs for when you reach 2nd and 3rd trimesters.

No, it's not safe to use tampons while pregnant. During pregnancy you do not menstruate so have no need for tampons, if you're experiencing bleeding during pregnancy you need to talk to a doctor and to deal with blood use pads. Tampons pose high risk of vaginal infections and TSS, also without knowing how heavy bleeding will be you may use too high an absorbency.

Tampons cannot get anyone pregnant. To be blunt, the only way that a 10 year old girl could get pregnant would be if a man was to rape her.

It's biologically impossible to menstruate while pregnant - if you're seeing vaginal bleeding heavy enough to require a tampon then either you're not pregnant or you're miscarrying. If you are pregnant and see bleeding you should seek medical attention.If you're experiencing spotting during pregnancy tampons cannot be used, just like any other time it's not safe to use tampons with spotting, light flow, or when not menstruating. Using tampons during this time increases risk of Toxic Shock Syndrome.

No, you're not supposed to use tampons while swimming.If you're menstruating then you need to use internal menstrual products such as tampons, menstrual sponges, softcups, or menstrual cups - this is so that the blood doesn't leave your body and end-up in the pool. Menstrual cups are the best option for swimming as they're safer than tampons and don't leak like tampons. If you're not menstruating then you shouldn't use tampons at all and there's no need to use tampons when you are swimming if not on your period.

No...you have to wear a tampon while swimming on your period, or do not swim at all.

I think it can be if they're extremely tight. You should wear loose fitting clothing. You should always be one hundred percent comfortable in anything you wear while pregnant.

Girls wear tampons to deal with their menstrual flow during menstruation. Tampons go into the vagina to absorb flow before it leaves the body in order to prevent it showing on their clothing. Some women choose to use tampons instead of other options like menstrual cups and menstrual pads.

No, tampons should only be used when you're on your period. Never use when not menstruating as this will be uncomfortable and potentially increase your risk of contracting Toxic Shock Syndrome. There's absolutely no reason to use tampons when not on your period, having a massage makes no difference: there's no reason why you should need to use tampons while having a massage.

If a person were pregnant they would not be menstruating, thus not need to use tampons. Pregnancy symptoms can mean a lot of things, if bleeding you're more likely not pregnant.

tight clothes and non breathable underware

No, you cannot wear tampons when you are pregnant - if pregnant you're not menstruating.If you experience bleeding during pregnancy then you need to see a doctor to determine why, you would then use a pad not a tampon as you don't know if it's safe to use tampons. Tampons when pregnant or when used without sufficient flow poses significant health risks to you and baby.

The best way to reduce your risk of TSS is simply not to use tampons.There are plenty of other options such as menstrual cups or softcups which are not only a lot safer and more hygienic than tampons so don't pose health risks like TSS, but that are also more comfortable, conveniet, and reliable. Look into menstrual cups such as Mooncup http://www.mooncup.co.uk/wc.php?u=1741If you do use tampons, follow precautions:Change tampons every 4-6 hours.Alternate with pads as often as possible.Always use lowest absorbency for your flow.Change absorbency as your flow changes.Avoid rayon tampons like Tampax or Playtex.Opt for cotton tampons like Emerita or Veeda.Do not wear tampons before your period.Do not wear tampons with light flow or spotting.Do not wear tampons overnight while sleeping.Do not wear tampons with a vaginal infection.Wash hands before using tampons.Store tampons in clean dry place.Learn about risks of TSS, infections, and dioxin.Learn symptoms of TSS and what to do.You ARE Love (TSS information) - http://www.you-are-loved.org
